There is no better time than the present to anoint another Independence Bank player of the week. Independence Bank is proud to sponsor a weekly article highlighting players in the areas where Independence Bank flourishes who embody the same type of revolutionary service to their respective football teams which has made Independence Bank unique and special in the banking industry.
Independence Bank has a goal of achieving everyday excellence, and this week we are focusing on a player whose performance both has and continues to exceed the Cougars’ and McClean County, Kentucky community’s expectations. We are focusing on the class of 2020, RB, Peyton Caraway, from McClean County, Kentucky.
Peyton attends McClean County High School. The closest Independence Bank branch to Peyton’s high school lies approximately 7.9 miles from Calhoun, traveling down KY-136E, in neighboring Livermore, Kentucky. Hey, Cougars, go see the many banking services our friends, who brought you this article, offer your area. Revolutionary service is awaiting you, right there in McLean County, by simply traveling to our Liverpool, Kentucky branch on 614 Henton Street.
We know we have before selected Peyton as the Revolutionary Player of the Week back in October of 2018. With a new season looming, the 6-0, 214 pound RB/MLB may have more eyes on him this year than any previous. At MLB in 2018, Caraway has 54 tackles, 6 TFLs, and 2.5 QB sacks. On offense, and at RB, he carried the ball only 95 times for 1,038 yards from scrimmage with 10 rushing TDs.
Here’s the kicker, outside of departed AJ Cline, he is also the only Cougar to attempt a pass on the roster in 2018. So who’s going to QB the Cougar offense in 2019? Caraway? We don’t think we would slot him there. Not with what he does at RB.
The reason we wouldn’t think McLean could afford to move Caraway to QB is rather elementary. Without a credible threat passing the football in 2019, or at least a tested and proven one, Zach Wagner may well have to really lean on a rushing attack which returns Caraway, but lost to graduation both Noah Baldwin (114 carries for 959 yards rushing, 11 TDs) and Jacob Miller (157 carries for 819 yards rushing, 15 TDs). How this opera plays out will be intriguing, to say the least, as we enter Fall/2019.
Congratulations to Peyton Caraway, for this the second time, from McClean County High School in Calhoun, Kentucky for his Revolutionary Play which has earned him this week’s recognition from the fastest growing bank in the Commonwealth of Kentucky…your friends at Independence Bank.
This is F.W. Long reporting for KPGFootball reminding you to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE!
